A spectacular 8-day desert adventure, walking into the deep desert of the Moroccan Sahara, across the region’s most breathtaking terrain – and a trek to the top of one of its highest dunes.
Let us take you from beautiful, vibrant Marrakech over the High Atlas mountains and down into the Sahara for the desert adventure you’ve always dreamed of. You’ll trek along Morocco’s longest valley, the Draa, winding our way through palm groves – and you’ll walk across vast landscapes of rock and sand, before ascending Erg Chegaga, Morocco’s highest dune, and looking out over a landscape of rolling desert stretching to the horizon. You’ll never be the same again.
Welcome to the Sahara – a shifting landscape of incredible sunrises and sunsets, huge dunes (ergs) and the widest, most star-filled skies to be found in Africa. Your walking adventure will take you to through the palm trees of the Draa Valley to Zagora, “the gateway to the Sahara” – and you’ll end your magical journey near the oasis town of M’ Hamid.
Enroute you’ll enjoy the hospitality of a Berber fixed camp and encounters with the semi-Nomadic Ait Atta Berber people. Your camel-train will walk for 4 days across a landscape of giant rolling dunes, some of which are up to 200 metres high – and every night, you’ll camp out on the sand, watching the daylight disappear, the stars emerge and fade once more, and the sun creep back into the world in a golden blaze of light.
Since the Sahara isn’t all sand (which makes up less than half of this colossal desert engulfing the top of Africa), you’ll encounter rocky plateaus, gravel beds and even the occasional tamarisk tree. It’ll be an exciting, authentic taste of the Sahara and its people – and the perfect introduction to this astonishing corner of the world.
